    I have been working at Margolin Winer & Evens full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was a great place to start and learn. I was hired right out of college. You have to work hard like any accounting firm. I thought the performance reviews were OK and fair. They expanded from a small office to a bigger renovated one in the same building. This place is right across from Roosevelt Field Mall but you probably only get to see it more than be in it since you either out on a client or working late.

    Cons

    Since you are working a lot, it is obvious that there isn't much work/life balance. This is typical of accounting firms. Being too close to Macy's (the paycheck killer or you get to see it and not go to it).

    Pros

    People are quite nice. If you live in Long Island, it is good place to work.

    Cons

    Management did not communicate well with lower levels. One manager was very condescending. Management does not like to accept new clients. If they want to grow, they need more revenue.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules, great for working mother's.
    Scheduling is done with consideration about your needs.
    People who work with are nice.

    Cons

    Flexibility come with a price in terms of career advancement.
    Only 1 senior was promoted to manager from 20 odd seniors in the company and 1 was hired from outside.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To some of the senior management, Please smile and acknowledge the presence of your employees. We are not invisible when we walk in the office.
